    He was reported over and over and over and NOTHING was done. It is not the school districts responsibility to raise children and keep them out of trouble, it is the parent's responsibility.

    Let me say that I remember this person from Carver Middle School. He is the same student who hit a teacher in the face while in the 6th grade and got a slap on the wrist from the district. The teacher was told to press charges if she wanted anything done. He continued to cause problems in the 7th grade. He was always given a slap on the wrist. Look at what he has become. Perfect example of a JUVENILE DELIQUENT!!!!!

    Hey Response....don't blame anyone but yourself for giving me a reason to talk. Your grammar is horrible. HAHA...you work for DHS? No wonder that system is so inept, not to mention the biggest joke I have ever seen. The majority of the DHS case workers are lazy, ignorant, ill-educated; and just like the families they serve: drawing a check!

Stop being statistic...O and FYI I work for the Department of Human Service and the ratio of blks recieving assistant is 50%, whites 45%, and 5% other....So my pt is white folks needs to go get jobs and stop having babies to.....

    A PUNK IS NOT SOMEONE WHO BACKS DOWN BUT STOOPS TO SOMEONE ELSES LEVEL. WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND AND PEOPLE NEED TO LEARN THAT. WE ARE ALL STRUGGLING SO WHY WORRY ABOUT WHAT SOMEBODY ELSE SAID OR DID. LET KARMA TAKE CARE OF THEM . IN LIFE WE ALL LOOSE AND WE ALL GAIN, SOMETIMES MORE THAN OTHERS. SHOOTING SOMEBODY IS A SIGN OF BEING WEAK, IF YOU ARE REAL YOU WILL JUST TALK IT OUT OF FIGHT IT OUT. SHOOTING SOMEONE IS ALSO A SIGN OF STUPIDTY CAUSE THE SHOOTER LOOSES MORE THAN ANYBODY ELSE.

    Are you serious? Is there any justification for shooting at someone who is sitting in a car? People with your attitude are just what is wrong with Meridian today. Everytime an African American is charged with something, here you all come to say: "I knew him and he was a good boy" "It was someone elses fault" "It was the police's fault" etc. I swear you are just confirming what all the white people are saying about you. So many of you (naot all) act so un-civilized. Please stop having babies, get a job and stop living off my tax dollars. If you all worked for a living like I do you would be to tired to stir up so much trouble!
